Safety First with New Compact Shield for Stirrer Hotplates
Product News Aug 23, 2011
Asynt’s Compact Lab Safety Shield fits neatly around any stirrer hotplate to provide robust, convenient protection from splashes, aerosols and spills.
Ideal for use where fume hood space is at a premium, the Safety Shield offers additional protection for chemists in the event of a tube or cap failure under pressure, even if the fume hood sash is raised.
Manufactured from 5mm polycarbonate, the Safety Shield is resistant to a range of commonly-used laboratory solvents and is temperature-resistant to 170ºC.
Designed with a small footprint to maximize fume hood space, the shield maintains access to hotplate controls and gives good all-round visibility of the reaction or process.
In addition to giving essential protection in applications such as heated parallel reactions in tubes, especially those operating under pressure, the device also shields reactions from the cooling effect of ventilation.
Manufactured in the UK, this is the only compact safety shield available for under £100 which fits Asynt, IKA and Heidolph stirrer hotplates.
